Below is a link to a great article that applies to our current situation:
You will realize why it takes a while to build 6 new tees, let alone 1 tee, the grounds staff can't drop everything to allow for construction, the tees are an "extra" and progress happens when we have everything else done.
The second part of the article raises some valid concerns. We have the tools here to build a tee effectively, it will just take time. We are making the proper precautions with irrigation coverage, drainage and size of the tee. We are also putting on our "architect" hats and fitting the tees in where we feel they will fit with respect to the hole being played.
